Unit IV PowerPoint Presentation
For this assignment, you will discuss what you have learned in Unit III and Unit IV by creating a 15-slide PowerPoint presentation that addresses the case studies listed below.
The purpose of this presentation assignment is to research emerging technologies that impact businesses and society and how individuals, businesses, and government organizations go about protecting users in the cyberworld.

You will review each case study and create a PowerPoint presentation that provides a thorough analysis and a demonstrates your synthesis of the concepts presented in units III and IV.

In formatting your PowerPoint presentation, do not use the question-and-answer format; instead, use bullets, graphs, and/or charts in your slides to identify important points, and then discuss those points in the speaker notes of each slide. The speaker notes section of each slide should not repeat slide information, but serve as an area in which you augment or elaborate on slide information so that your audience has a better understanding of the material. You must have a minimum of 100 words in the Speaker Notes section of each content slide.
Your PowerPoint presentation should be a minimum of 15 slides in length (not counting the title and reference slides). You are required to use a minimum of two peer-reviewed, academic sources that are no more than 5 years old to support each case study. You may use your eTextbook once in each case study. All sources used, including the eTextbook, must be referenced; all paraphrased material must have accompanying in-text citations. At least two sources must come from the CSU Online Library. APA style and formatting is required.
